Meet Ripley. Not only does Ripley rock some awesome hats, but he's also a master at living a well balanced life. Observe as he plays some fusion Polka, then he catches a comfortable cat nap, before he perfects his ollie and kick flip.
Ripley was inspired by a Hershey's Kiss shaped cat named Shadow, who earned his name because he constantly followed my mom around the house. Shadow believed he was a human.
Being a rescue cat we don't really know Shadow's background, but I'm pretty sure it involved skateboarding and some serious shenanigans.
Ripley's story is still in development, but you can follow his progress on the blog artomel.blogspot.com or contact me for more information.
